Junior Kiyanna Gill has been fed up with the food on Wesley College campus and wants to expand her choices.
“I feel like the Den and the cafe just isn’t enough for me,” she said. “It would be amazing if we could possibly have another option for food.”
Many students say they like a small corner store barely a block away from campus.
The Grocery Basket, a small deli and convenience store, sits close by on the corner of North Bradford and Mary streets.
Know familiarly as “The Basket,” its menu has a variety of choices, from breakfast foods, BLT’s, cheesesteaks, burgers and salads.
Junior football player Dante Daniels said he especially likes The Basket because of its hours.
“We share the field with both women and men’s soccer team along with the field hockey team, so our practice hours could be after the cafe is already closed,” he said. “Then we have to find another source for food. They have reasonable prices that are cheap.”
The Grocery Basket, however, doesn’t accept Wesley students’ ID card points to pay.
“That would make it a lot easier,” Daniels said.
The cafe is open for breakfast 7-10 a.m.; it reopens for lunch from 11a.m.-2 p.m. During weekdays, dinner hours are for 4:30-7 p.m.
The Grocery Basket is open from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. every day.
“With the Grocery Basket having hours like these, it is much easier for us college students to get food,” junior Jaimi Snyder said. “Especially if it is getting late and I am craving food, I can always rely on the Basket.”
